A clash of realities: should he stay or should he go ? An actual couple, Kirk Acevedo and Kerry Johnson perform (or perhaps manifest) the problems of being a couple. The story takes place between given lines and documented feelings, resulting in an oil and water mix of film and life.
Winner: Best short Film (Slamdance,1997)
"This film excited me with its genuine curiosity about fictional characters and what we think we're doing when we bring them to life. It's a formal experimental film, with a frank and open interest in human beings."
-Hal Hartley, Director
"(KIRK AND KERRY) incorporates the language of the American avant-garde into a film whose premises are in line with Cassavetes, Godard and Hal Hartley Its subject matter is exactly of the moment. I've never seen anything quite like it."
-Amy Taubin, The Village Voice
"It's a movie within a movie, and others have tried a similar idea, but I think I prefer this to all the others."
- Jonas Mekas, filmmaker
